Journey from the past to the present.

Truly, I already started practicing what the quote is all about just late this year … 3 years later!  For sure, I am not the only one and I did try my best.

Another blogger that I am following gave me an inspiration and insight about my topic today. He gives good advises & can explain better than me about what a topic is about… his name is Drew and here is his LINKEnjoy reading!

His post about “Navigating Life” and I can’t help but to answer in my mind the questions asked in his seminar at work that he put in his blog and explained.

Here’s the thought:

  1.  The most important thing is where you are right now.  I now realized that I was focused on  the “the life I had before”  that it’s hard for me to let go and accept what are the good things staring in front of me… yes where I am right now.  I keep comparing but the reality is, it is not fair to compare “a kiwi to a date!”  if you get my meaning.  Where I am right now is with my family and hope to stay that way.
  2.  Appreciating what you have I started to see and appreciate what life has to offer for us in our current situation.  Nowhere else we will feel these “benefits” and gain more insights about the World and having an “expats (extra-ordinary) life”  if we stay put in our comfort zone.
  3.  It’s better to have plans and if one is a failure then you have many other options in place.  I often think that after we finished our journey here, that I for one, will be back in my hometown, home Country.  I guess now it’s different.  I am now open to possibility of saying… “it may not be, yet…”  OR “will see what other opportunities out there” OR  “we can always go back anytime”  as I cannot decide just for myself since having a family, it’s all for one and one for all!  Plan A, B, C’s are the best way for us to go ahead.  Life’s journey is never easy but somehow we will decide what’s best for our family one contract at a time!

I leave you with another quote and maybe some of you readers can also relate to my post.  Feel free to comment and I will truly appreciate it.  Thank You for your time.

  1. This blog post served as a reminder for me, especially “the most important thing is where you are right now”. I needed it so much, especially since there are still a lot of instances wherein I compare my present to my past. You’re right; the present is really the most important thing and we have many choices to improve our present and ultimately, our future.😍

  2. Hi! I totally get you! I have also been wanting to move back to California. It is a place where my heart and spirit belong to. But as long as I’m with people I love them that’s what I’ll call home for now

    • Thanks Boots. I may not be able to explain further for some “restrictions” but good to know you still understand what I’m trying to say. I also wonder if ever we go back home, for sure life will be different as some expats experienced when coming back to their home Country. Appreciated your comments and wish you well, regards to family!

  3. Something I’ve definitely learned in recent years is that plans usually don’t go the way you expect them to. I guess we have to have them but you’re right, adjustment is the name of the game – plan A, B and C then accept D! Hope it’s all working out for you x
